It is an honor to have a ministry partnership with Dr. Joel Medley of Defined By Moments. Joel is a long time friend of mine and has mentored me in the past as well. He is an excellent Bible teacher and also an excellent teacher on leadership. With Defined By Moments, Joel has shown that these two areas not only belong together but they must go together. Joel teaches about biblical leadership lessons and how they can be applied to our lives.
On his website, one will find a blog, a photography page, a podcast, a link to his new book, and much more! Be sure to check out Joel's online ministry, Defined By Moments, and listen to his podcast of the same name which we have the honor to host on By His Grace's Sermon Audio channel.
Defined by Moments breaks down the life of Gideon into 13 critical decisions that either advanced or diminished his leadership. Defining moments are not the grand successes or failures for which we are remembered but are the moments, hardly noticed by others, that create those public milestones. Gideon’s story is compelling in that he offers a balanced picture of leadership’s highs and lows. This book will challenge the interpretive notion that Gideon was a coward by arguing that he was an ordinary, faith-challenged leader whose defining moments shaped him. Every decision matters, and you will learn strategies to help recognize and act upon your defining moments.
